Problem Statement

Immune interception and prevention strategies harness the immune system to prevent invasive cancer at a stage when anti-tumor immunity is most effective. Despite its great potential to positively impact public health, there is a marked lack of education and awareness within the field of immuno-oncology on immunoprevention, and the field of cancer interception and prevention remains largely nascent. The scientific community must effectively address and develop the field of immunoprevention, improving patient outcomes and reducing the global burden of cancer. 

Summit Goals & Objectives

The primary objective of the SITC Immunoprevention Virtual Summit was to highlight opportunities and challenges in the field of immunoprevention. Secondary goals include defining immunoprevention, with an emphasis on primary prevention; developing a roadmap to move forward in the field of immunoprevention; and establishing SITC as a home for researchers and healthcare providers interested in immunoprevention.
